what’s the hurry?
In this poem, two people are walking outside. They are walking quickly until one realizes that they have nowhere in particular to be. They are walking simply for the sake of walking and have no destination other than to return to the place that they started from. They have nothing in particular to do at that place, and so when they arrive is inconsequential. When one of them realizes this they question why they are walking so fast. The poem reflects on the idea of appreciating the moment rather than focusing on the next one.
